    Pop country crooner Blake Shelton will star as Earl, a cowboy pig, in the upcoming The Angry Birds Movie. The singer was also tapped to record an original song, "Friends," for the 3D animated comedy based on the wildly popular game.

    According to Entertainment Weekly, it took some adjusting before Shelton settled into the role. "I can write things about myself and my life," he said, "But I don't have a whole lot of experience being shot out of a slingshot at pigs."

    He also tells EW he went full-on hillbilly. "They kept saying, 'More country!" he said. "I felt like I was doing a voiceover for Dukes of Hazzard."

    The Angry Birds Movie also stars Jason Sudeikis and Danny McBride, and comes to theaters May 20th.

    According to Rolling Stone, Shelton is also "writing and recording a new album, one that will reportedly address his divorce last summer from Miranda Lambert."
